Re: Swiss vote on radical heroin rules

As long as prescription is linked to support and rehabilitation, it has my total support.

The benefits far outweigh any negative messages. Unfortunately, drugs are a fact of life now and it is far better to work with the addicts rather than just banning the supply.

Addicts would get a safe supply, rather than some dodgy contaminated stuff.
The link beween addicts and the pushers could be broken.
The link to crime could also be broken. Much of the minor crime (thefts from cars, shoplifting etc.) and prostitution is directly linked to drug-taking.
Removing prescription services would put many more people into the underworld of the pushers.
